The AMP Cohort

"This was truly a life changing experience. The program has provided me not only tools, but confidence. I really felt like we were in a family atmosphere, and I know I will cherish the relationships I have built with faculty and students for the rest of my life."

Mike Anderson, AMP ’13 - President, The RAC Group A service-disabled veteran owned company

The cohort of talented classmates who learn from the faculty and each other is a key asset of the Accelerated Master’s Program in Systems Engineering. Each year the Accelerated Master’s Program enrolls 30 to 40 highly motivated individuals from diverse backgrounds. As students progress through this rigorous education program together, the members of the cohort form strong bonds with one another and establish a solid group identity. AMP students are often engaged in small group learning, both formally in case-study breakout sessions and project groups, and informally in student-generated study groups and discussions. As they interact with classmates from different industries, with different backgrounds and experiences, AMP students look at problems from new perspectives, learn from their colleagues, and develop life-long friendships and professional networks. The cohort learning model provides support during the program, and the AMP Alumni Network is a valuable resource going forward.

"You learn so much from each other. The group dynamic is amazing! It’s really powerful when you begin to collaborate."
